Prescience is the ability to forecast the events of the future in a number of ways.
Immutable Prescience: These prescient people see events which, for whatever reason, are unchangeable. This may occur in dream or in waking states.
This is due largely to how time works in ways similar to a river or a landscape, sometimes when moving in certain directions, the force and energy
involved in going towards that direction cannot be altered, an inevitable event arises. In other words, these people are never wrong when they have
Symbolic Prescience: These prescient people see events in symbolic terms. For example, say a girl you work with and you never hang out with. Suddenly
you dream of being in the hills, then in a city, then in a bar, sharing an odd intimacy with one another. Everything that happens is symbolic, except
there is a recognition that the event itself (the girl, the feeling, the travel) are all plausible. Then days later, or weeks or years, the event will
play out in the way of the dream only in actuality, so the symbols are only reflections of the actual future event.
Intuitive Prescience: This is literally intuition, the ability to know when something is right or not right, good or not good. People with this level
of ability are able to avoid situations like plane crashes, car accidents, gain promotions or win something based on feeling. They know when to start
and when to stop, or when a certain course of action will eventually lead to danger.
Active Prescience: This is the active use of the prescient faculty, while being fully conscious or in a dream/unconscious state/oob state. The point
is that one projects all the possibilities of a future event, and categorizes them by their probability. Intense scrutiny requires each probability to
be assessed for randoms, or chaos waves, which could potentially alter the probability of any event. Thus, knowing the probabilities of each
probability, you can choose which probabilities are most likely to result in the reality your trying to get to. These people are absolute exemplars of
free will, and can change themselves virtually over night to aim for an event years in the future.
Active Symbolic Prescience: This is divination, that through the use of symbolic means a person may attain to knowledge of the future. Like symbolic
prescience active symbolic prescience uses symbols to lay out a sequence of events, which are then searched for meaning which is relevant to the
question and the person asking. The difference is that a system and sometimes tradition are employed, and it is done while in a waking state.
Mind-Altered Prescience: This encompasses any form of prescience which arises from intoxication, be it from spiritual or physical intoxication. This
might come as the result of prayer which inspires the individual to speak prophecy, or it might come as the result of imbibing a psychoactive or
psychotropic substance which alters your mind with the result that you are able to peer into the future.
Spirit Prescience: This encompasses any form of contact with a spirit which then proceeds to give prophecies. This may also be inspired by prayer or
drugs with the result that either of these might produce a vision of a spirit which dictates prophecy. At any rate good examples of this sort of
prescience is the Bible, the Quran, and the journals of John Dee.
There is no known limit to how many variations of prescience a person might have. A person may have symbolic and active prescience, or spirit and
intuitive, or any number of the above kinds.
Many people have some kind of experience with some of these at least once in their life. They have a dream which comes true, or a vision of an event,
or while intoxicated have a glimpse of something. Or they merely have a feeling, and learn to follow their intuition.
